In the first hour after you learn something, if nothing is done with new the information, you will forget about 50% of it.

A big part of our forgetting is related to a healthy functioning of our memory: our brains select what’s important and dismiss the rest.

When you deliberately remember something you’ve learned or came across recently, you signal to your brain that it needs to hold onto that piece of information.
